Growing up, Jesus Gama was fascinated by the mobile phone market, so Jesus brought on investors and started his own design and phone repair business, GamaTech.
As a student at Lincoln High School, Jesus Gama participated in a resume workshop lead by the San Diego Workforce Partnership’s CONNECT2Careers (C2C) program. He had positive memories about the trainers’ enthusiasm and he even put together his first resume during the workshop. “They had everything pretty much set up for you. I enjoyed working with them and they were very helpful. Help like that is unforgettable,” says Gama.
Recently, Gama got in touch with his C2C peer job coach and focused on creating a resume suited to his job interests. He worked to integrate specific edits to his resume that highlighted relevant experiences and skills he obtained since attending that first C2C resume workshop.
“CONNECT2Careers helped me create a great updated resume…I decided to take the resume they helped me create and went out searching for a job,” says Gama.
Gama used the C2C portal to explore employment opportunities and apply for jobs. Eventually, Gama accepted a position at a local restaurant, which best suited his work needs and helped him pay back investors of GamaTech.
